People are shocked and dismayed by the way we make headstones! They are surprised to learn the stones are crafted almost entirely by hand. And are amazed by the true craftsmanship that goes into each and every memorial. No matter how large or how small, every headstone we make is created with the highest level of precision and care.
Of course every headstone we make starts with love. It all starts with the love of family and friends and the desire to honor one’s legacy.
How to Make a Headstone
As humans, when we love someone, we want to honor them. And to honor someone’s memory is to remember and never forget. That is why creating a permanent cemetery memorial is so important. It is an act of love. An act of honor. And the ultimate act of remembrance.
Of course the very first step you need to take to honor someone with a permanent memorial is to decide what you want the monument to look like or say. My Memorial Creation Journal is the perfect guide to assist you with all of the decision points.

When you receive the proof you will want to review it for accuracy. In fact, it will be helpful to checkout our 5 Smart Things to Think Through While Creating a Headstone.
